Ron can't seem to say no to Van -- no matter how unreasonable the demand -- in a new clip from tonight's episode of Powerless, titled "Cold Season."
You can check it out below.
In the episode, Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) convinces Teddy (Danny Pudi) to enter what she thinks is a game‑changing invention into the Wayne Innovation contest against the elitist engineers of Wayne X, even though he has his doubts. Meanwhile, Van (Alan Tudyk) takes advantage of Ron's (Ron Funches) good nature and has him assemble a toy in hopes of preoccupying his new girlfriend's child.
Powerless is, weirdly, probably the TV series that most accurately reflects a number of elements of the DC Universe from the comic book source material, with years of history that includes larger-than-life elements like President Lex Luthor, multiple dead Robins, and a general public awareness of the idea of secret identities and the like.
It's also the one that features the least notable superheroes, with characters like Crimson Fox and "The Riddler's goons" making appearances, and larger characters only mentioned or implied.
While the show was originally set at an insurance company, and later changed to Wayne Security, the reshot pilot was arguably the weakest link of the season, with both reviews and social media presence getting better on a week to week basis. Powerless may not be a sure thing for a second season, but ratings-and-reviews wise, it seems more likely than not that NBC will take a chance with another year of the workplace comedy.
In a world where humanity must cope with the collateral damage of Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) begins her first day as Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss (Alan Tudyk) and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don't need superpowers to be a hero.
Danny Pudi, Christina Kirk and Ron Funches also star.
Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, Len Goldstein, Marc Buckland and Dean Lorey are executive producers of Powerless. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and is based on the characters from DC.
